Delmar Company Case Study
E2 from Shoptech is the machine shop software that gives job shops the flexibility they need
About Delmar Company
Delmar Company supplies precision plastic parts to a variety of industries. According to Delmar President Kevin Delk, the variety of parts and companies he deals with, combined with the constant “on the fly” order changes made it difficult to schedule shop operations, and to track pricing to his customers. In July of 2001, after reviewing several other packages, Delmar made the decision to install E2 machine shop software. After acclimating his staff, Kevin says that E2 has allowed Delmar to grow far beyond expectations.
“I love the ability to copy quotes and send them quickly via the Internet – it makes us look professional, and has helped us double our business.”
-Kevin Delk, Delmar Company
Why did Delmar Choose E2?
In the spring of 2001, President Kevin Delk and IT Director Bruce Minnick concluded that they had out grown their current system, which had led their accounting, but could not keep pace with their pricing, orders or purchasing issues. After reviewing several systems, they settled on E2 – Kevin loves the speed and efficiency with which he can track his customers’ order and pricing history, as well as hismaterial costs. He can issue quotes on the spot, giving him an edge over his competition. In addition, he can instantly see what is happening on his shop floor, allowing him to handle sudden order or deadline changes with out a problem.
The Results… So Far
Delmar made the switch to E2 because their old system restricted company growth,and the company’s bottom lines show that the choice was the right one. Quoting and order processes have increased so much in speed and efficiency that company president Kevin Delk is now free to concentrate more on increasing sales than overseeing operations. The result: since installing and learning to use E2, Delmar has more than doubled its business, and is poised for an additional 50% growth over the up coming year.
